This morning, Ben and Brita left for a little weekend trip. They are going to the Sonoma area and then to Sacramento for a concert on Sunday by the Avett Brothers, a favorite of theirs. So, while the cats are away, the mice get to play! We started out with bacon and pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. They love pancakes! And if there is not enough bacon to divide evenly, there could be a fight!
It was not raining, so we went for an outing. We took them to Donner Memorial State Park, which is not far. We went to the museum and learned not only about the Donner Party, but also about the history of the start of Truckee. Some very nice displays and some things that even interested the boys. We walked out side to the Donner statue, which is supposed to be the depth of the snow during the winter they ended up in this area of the Sierra Nevadas. The kids enjoyed getting out to run around.
We also heard from Dan, who was out deer hunting. Looks like he's soaking up some sun and staying away from the grizzlies!
This afternoon we all played UNO, and read stories. After supper, we watched the Addams Family animated movie to get us in the Halloween spirit. We also made s'mores in the kitchen, so we were sugared up and sticky by bedtime! Tonight, all 3 boys slept in the trailer with us, and that's a bit of a crowd. Jack rolled on the floor but didn't wake up, and Ian was halfway between bed and floor! Must have been restless from the sugar and goofy bedtime stories!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
